As expected, Asus is launching a new phone/tablet hybrid in Taiwan. The Asus Padfone Infinity Lite is a 5 inch smartphone designed to slide into a 10 inch tablet dock when you want a bigger screen and a bigger battery.
While the Padfone Infinity has a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, the Lite edition has a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU.
Other specs are largely the same, including the phone’s 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and the Tablet Station’s 10.1 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display.
The phone has a 2400mAh battery while the tablet dock has a 5000mAh battery of its own. That lets you recharge your phone while it’s connected to the tablet, or just get extra run time when using both devices together.
Asus plans to sell the phone and tablet dock together for about $700. Unfortunately there’s no word on whether this model will be available outside of Taiwan.
